This was delicious! I wanted to do a gingersnap crust, but the weird store near my house didn't have any and I was in a hurry, so I used cinnamon graham crackers for the crumbs and mixed with ground ginger. I also skipped the mace because I didn't have it and added nutmeg and doubled the cinnamon. I could not stop eating this and DH and sister loved it, too. A definite keeper!
EDIT: I tried this again and still cannot keep it from cracking (tried water bath, cooling it in the oven, cooking on a lower temp), BUT I found the nut topping below on another site and now my cheescake is gorgeous!
3/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup whipping cream
1 cup chopped toasted pecans
In a small heavy saucepan over low heat, combine brown sugar and butter; stir until sugar dissolves. Increase heat to medium-high and bring to a boil; remove from heat and mix in whipping cream and pecans. Pour hot topping over baked cheesecake.
